7 Things Every Real Estate Specialist Should Have In Their Bag

‘Show me what’s in your suitcase and I’ll tell you who are’ is by far, one of the most important aphorisms in the corporate world. You can tell a lot about a person by what they carry in their suitcase. Just think of a person’s suitcase as a reflection of his proficiency and also an extension of his personality. Is his luggage organized? Is he rigged for out of the blue situations?

Now, in order to make the everyday lives of every real estate professional easier, we’ve rounded up 7 essential items they should keep in their bag. This guide will not only aid them in every battle the world throws at them, it will also keep their suitcase organized and clutter-free.

1. Planner and pen

Believe it or not, even in the age of smartphone calendar apps, scribbling down reminders is still the best way to go. Why? Apparently, jotting down reminders takes less energy and effort than opening multiple windows in your smartphone. And besides, a study has shown that writing can boost your memory and help you remember what you’ve written.

2. Mobile Phone

Through the years, mobile phones have evolved from being an item of leisure into a total necessity. This breakthrough in technology has altered and broadened our means of communications. Today, transactions with potential clients aren’t only made through traditional phone calls, it can also be closed through multiple social apps, including emails, Viber, Facebook, Skype, and more. So, be careful not to leave it at home, someone really important can be calling, Skyping, messaging, or emailing you right now.

3. Business Card

Despite everything going digital, swapping business cards is one of the practices that remain better when done in the traditional way. Aside from being an effective marketing tool, this habit also shows a lot about a real estate specialist’s competence and mindset. Exchanging contact information through business cards feels more personal than digital methods. It also creates an impression of your brand and shows that you are prepared.

4. iPad, laptop, or sales kit

Every real estate professional knows that having a laptop or iPad is crucial to the job. Clients are visual creatures; they like to see what you will give them for their money. With this, you should make sure that you have a striking presentation to introduce to your client. If a laptop or iPad is out of your budget, don’t fret, a clear copy of your sales kit can also do the job. Just make sure that it is presented in a neat and organized manner.

5. Flash drive

Keep your files safe and secure with the help of this innovative, multipurpose tool. Aside from securing and backing your data up, a flash drive can also come in handy in unpredicted situations. Need a copy of the newly launched condominium’s AVP? Is your client looking for a printed copy of the computation sample? Have no fear, your handy flash drive is here!

6. Extra Cash

Being in the field of sales, you already know to expect the unexpected. Out of the blue situations are already part of your daily routine. Whether your client wants an espresso or you need to take a cab to the next city, you are entitled to spend extra moolah in order to flourish your investment.

7. Grooming Kit

In order to achieve success in your career, you must be prim and confident. And to portray a pleasant image and radiate confidence, a real estate professional should be conscious of his or her grooming habits. Like what I’ve mentioned in my previous post ‘5 Power Grooming Secrets Every Real Estate Professional Must Know’, your physical appearance is crucial to the job. You are going to be judged the minute you walk into the room, even before you get the chance to speak and prove your competence. So, to make a positive impression, make sure to keep a grooming kit in your bag. Its content should include everything from breath mints, oil control films, to hair products. As the saying goes, ‘Dress for success!’

With these essentials in your bag, rest assured that you’ll be able to take on whatever challenge the world (or specifically speaking, your client) throws at you. So, rearrange your work bag today and equip yourself like a professional real estate specialist.

Westchester Real Estate

New York real estate isn’t all about million-dollar condominiums. In fact, that type of real estate is usually found in New York City. In other areas of the state, home owners can get single-family properties at reasonable prices. Westchester County is one of the best examples. With Westchester real estate, you can get a single-family home for $400,000.

Now, many people may think that $400,000 is far from reasonable. However, in other parts of New York, such an amount would barely get a condominium. Plus, the single-families at this price tend to be very luxurious. But if the amount still seems out of reach, there’s always the option of getting another type of Westchester real estate… condominiums. They cost $150,000, a price that can be afforded even on middle-class budgets.

Of course, price isn’t the only reason why a person should consider Westchester real estate. There’s also the issue of being able to live a slower-paced, suburban lifestyle. And once a Westchester resident is ready to venture back into the city, they can hope on the Metro-North Railroad, which would take them to the Bronx. If they want to go to other parts of New York, they can use Amtrak. This would take them through Croton-Harmon, New Rochelle and Yonkers.

In conclusion, Westchester real estate is a good alternative for New Yorkers in need of cheaper housing. True, it’s not as inexpensive as other areas, but unlike other locations, Westchester County allows for suburban prestige and metropolitan excitement, (since it is so close to New York City).
